Not as good as the other vitamins,
This review is from: Vitamin Ph (New Perspectives in Photography) (Paperback)
Not all vitamins are equal! I've got the Vitamin P (Painting) and really enjoy it. Its a book you keep coming back to for inspiration and for an overview of contemporary painting. Buying books on the internet is always a bit hit and miss: if I'd had the chance to flick through Vitamin Ph in a book shop, I'd have put it back on the shelves.
The text is a bit "flat" or boringly written and the photographs for each artist are either too big and too few of them or all a bit too small and too many. Its an OK book, but just, somehow patchy and a bit uninspiring. Possibly its the alphabetical arrangement of artists, instead of themes. There are better photography survey books out there.

If "there are better photography survey books out there" would you like to name some? Not saying this is a bad review at all, on the contrary but I would like to know.
